Nevada vs Air Force Prediction & Pick

While Nevada and Air Force don't allow a ton of points — 67.3 PPG (No. 98) and 65.7 PPG (No. 59), respectively — the former has the offensive advantage. While the Wolf Pack score 72.4 PPG (No. 118), the Falcons only operate on a 67.6 PPG clip (No. 246).

Neither team is great at rebounding, however, Nevada does have the advantage in the paint as well, averaging 33.5 rebounds (No. 222) to Air Force's 29.9 (No. 350). The Falcons are only shooting 42.1% from the field on the road this season, meaning the Wolf Pack must secure any missed opportunities.

Nevada will likely be playing with extra confidence due to its beating Air Force in 12 of the last 13 meetings. With the Falcons also losing 16 of their last 20 MWC matchups, I'm even more confident that the Wolf Pack will remain perfect at home tonight.

Final Score Prediction: Nevada: 74 | Air Force: 65

Nevada vs Air Force Best Bet

When it comes to the best bet, I'm siding with the total going over 136.5 points. Hitting the over has been the norm for both sides, proven by the over being 6-3 in Air Force's last nine games and 5-0 in Nevada's last five at home. The over has also been. hit in 60% of the Falcons' MWC matchups this season, as well as in 80% of the Wolf Pack's conference tilts.

Furthermore, the over is 6-1 in the last seven Nevada-Air Force meetings. Considering how the two rivals have combined for more than 136.5 points in eight of their last 11 meetings, brace for more points than expected.

Bet: Over 136.5 Points (-105)
